Nah, my favourite Olympian of these recently completely Olympic Games in Beijing was Matthew Mitcham. It was painful watching the Aussies in the syncro diving considering how badly they went, but Mitcham's 10m platform diving was amazing. He ended up winning the gold medal and stopped China from getting eight from eight Olympic diving gold medals. He was one of only a few Australian Olympians that I saw who truly gave it up for the camera (hi Australian swimmers). And the fact that he's openly gay is just tops. Adam mentioned how the US coverage completely bypassed this aspect of him, yet I found it refreshing to see the Aussie media be so open about it. His boyfriend got nearly as many mentions as Matthew did!
